One of the few independents to open in any UK city centre this century! Find us opposite Nottingham Tourism centre.

Located in the centre of Nottingham, we specialise in:

Cityscape and Landscape, Politics, Fiction and Poetry,
Lesbian and Gay, Counterculture, International writing, and Magazines and Journals.

We asked all the bookshops to answer three Christmas questions:

1. What is your favourite Christmas book?

A Winter Book; selected stories by Tove Jansson (Sort of Books, £9.99) – might be stretching a point, but we have it in our Christmas section, and it is the best book there. No Moomins were hurt in the making of this non-Moomin collection for adults.

2. What books should we look out for this December? Adult fiction, children’s fiction and non-fiction
a) We sold more copies of this year’s Booker winner, Milkman by Anna Burns (Faber, £8.99) within a week after the prize than any other Booker winner over a year since the shop opened in 2013.
b) Pages & Co: Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James (HarperCollins, £12.99), in which Tilly’s favourite books come to life in her grandparents’ bookshop

c) The Library of Ice: readings from a cold climate (Upernavik in Greenland) by Nancy Campbell (Scribner, £14.99)

Tuesday 4 – Poetry reading by Liz Berry
Thursday 6 – Graham Jones on The Vinyl Revival
Monday 10 Chris Bambery on Catalonia Reborn
Thursday 13 – Lorna Holder on Caribbean fashion
